Under the streetlight's lazy glow
we run through the dimly lit night
hand in hand
through dew-kissed backyards
running from the world around us
i swear, I've never felt more alive
than here and now under a midsummer moon

Tonight i don't know the girl in the mirror
She's dizzy and reckless, kissed someone she just met
a stranger boy with a varsity jacket
He gives her a bruise on her face
and a rough kiss she no longer wants
his form of love, i suppose
but i've never felt more alone
than i do right now, lip bleeding, heart empty
as he leans over to hit me again,
the smell of alcohol on his breath.
